“The hottest ticket in town--and rightly so.” - The Wall Street Journal
“Deliriously dishy. It's Only a Play is a mammoth hit!” -The New York Times
Broadway’s Kings of Comedy, Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, are back together again in It's Only a Play, alongside F. Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, Katie Finneran, T.R. Knight and Micah Stock.
This hilarious ensemble comes together in a comedy written by four-time Tony® winner Terrence McNally and directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O'Brien - a celebration of theatre at its best…and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.
It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s (Matthew Broderick) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his novice producer (Katie Finneran), his doped-up diva (Stockard Channing), his genius director (T.R. Knight), a lethal drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan.
It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender—and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
